19th Century Housing
Located just outside the CBD
Houses built near to the factories so that the workers could get to work easily.
Housing 1920 - 1950
Newer houses built for the growing population.
The land is cheaper the further away from the CBD you go, so houses were built with gardens.
The land around the edge of a settlement is much cheaper and there is enough space to build large housing estates.
Industrial estates and business parks built since 1970, close to main roads
They are located close to main roads so that there is easy access for goods and employees
They are located near to rivers, canals and railways because they needed to transport goods in and out of the city.
